Garnet Filtration Media

Garnet is a high-density water filtration media used to remove fine particulate and to keep the silica bed static during rigorous backwash. In a multi-media filter, garnet sand is the finest layer and is located below the filter sand layer. Due to its high specific gravity, the garnet remains in its position in the filter even after backwashing. Course Garnet sizes are available for support layers.

Red Flint Sand & Gravel’s Garnet Filter Media is chemically inert non-metallic mineral that is known for its hardness and durability. The high specific gravity and its chemical and abrasive resistance make garnet ideal for water filtration.
